Please join the Political Theory Workshop for a session with Daniel Kapust, Professor of Political Theory in the Department of Political Science at University of Wisconsin-Madison. Professor Kapust will be presenting his paper entitled "Machiavelli's Discourses and the Tragedy of Empire" with Shawn Dean (Political Science PhD student, TGS) serving as the discussant.

Daniel Kapust received his PhD in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2005, and came to UW after six years in the Department of Political Science at The University of Georgia. Kapust’s research focuses on the history of political thought, especially Roman, Florentine, early modern, and 18th century, with thematic interests in rhetoric, empire, classical receptions, democratic theory, and the republican tradition.

He is currently working on two new book projects: one on Lucretius and early modern political thought (The Lucretian Moment: Lucretius and the Politics of Early Modernity), the other on imperial republics (The Tragedy of an Imperial Republic). He is also the Director of the Political Economy, Philosophy, and Politics Certificate Program.
